, show leadership and get on the local news without looking craven or opportunistic came with its own share of problems. quote, the last-minute nature of the call for donations left some in the campaign concerned that they would end with an empty truck. so the night before the event campaign aides went to a local walmart and spent $5,000 on granola bars, canned food and diapers to put on display while they waited for donations to come in. with only 6 days until the presidential election what's clear is that every granola and every bear hug counts. >>> ben, your libelus -- >> did you call a digital publication a rag. >> we'll take it. >> talk about this story. there is -- there's some, look, to be honest political optics, stage managing is something everybody does on both sides of the aisle. this was an opportunity for romney to not look opportunistic and they focused heavily on the optics. your assessment of mitt romney's position these days. >> i mean i think his position is impossible. when you're running a political campaign there is nothing you can do that is not going to be inter

got a read out from the white house that the president was on the phone with local officials and state officials. he has a job to do at this time. mitt romney is for better or worse in the awkward position of having to kind of campaign but not really campaign at the same time. in the "boston globe" there is i think a realist editorial that says the kumbaya stage, apparently what we're in right now, won't last wrong. politics is an undeniable aspect of any catastrophe. >> i mean look if you're a key executive of the state in the hurricane path you were graded on one thing in the next week and that is the response to the hurricane. everything else out the window because if you mess it up, everything is out the window. let's recall that president obama is fairly popular in jersey and chris christie is not. and he needs a lot of help from the federal government. he needs fema help, red cross help and trailers and everything so for a state executive at a bipartisan time, the president, he has an advantage, he can conduct diplomacy so to speak on like two treks. he can have the full machiner

to a voter in richmond, virginia, or something, right? it's that local connection you have that seems to help and it's a very local connection for paul ryan. but wisconsin is a state that can be quite volatile. although in those -- in the same exit polls that had correctly -- that had walker winning the recall, the same voters majority said i want to vote for obama anyway. and so wisconsin, he won it by 14 or 15 points some large margin in 2008. you can have the tide shift against you and have a big cushion there. >> wisconsin is this wonderful state, the state of robert, the great populist, joe mccarthy, not to draw connections between paul ryan and joe mccarthy and mitt romney. it was the recall that people didn't understand or feel was the right expression of protest against scott walker but the great occupation of the state house in support of workers, teachers, nurses, police, of wisconsin i think is going to play a role in this election where people came out to support a different kind of politics. >> i think we're reminding of the fairness of the american electorate, the fact they have

being shown to them, primarily on local news where most people get their news and they're counting on people not going back and checking and they're counting on a rigorous media fact check on it that he can get away with marketing this version of himself to current voters. mitt romney as republicans on the right believe, is just going to be the hand that holds the pen that signs conservative legislation. so there's no reason to believe that as president, he wouldn't simply sign because look, if he wins, that meant that republicans probably get the senate and probably hold the house. there is any reason to believe mitt romney would not follow through and sign anti-abortion legislation that came to his desk? is there any reason to believe he wouldn't at least attempt to put forward supreme court justices that would overturn roe? no reason not to believe that. >> i think there is also the other danger in terms of backtracking right now is, the conservative base, i mean the fact that the romney campaign immediately followed up that statement with, oh, wait, of course he's pro life, he

a local station he threw out that $17,000 number. it was the only number he threw out. wrote a story about it at the time. his aides came back and said the issue there was that a lot of these families if you are going to pull from all these buckets of tax deductions will had hit that $17,000 number quickly. in the debate after that story went out, be you saw romney change and say suddenly well, i'm just going to throw a random number out there, $25,000, $50,000, whatever. and i got notes in the wake of that pointing that out saying like here this number was actually random. it's because when they get into those specifics like that, people start to, you know, run the numbers on the back of a napkin and realize hey this is actually -- this actually could hurt me. so i think they have to be careful in how they talk about those numbers because it is so full of political pitfalls. on the broader question of how he did. they were pleased again with his performance. they've been really focused on the libya exchange that you showed earlier and really focused on what obama did or didn't say, whethe

the obama campaign has been effective with regional issues, auto industry and pushing local issues people care about like you're running a state or local race. >> 2004, before i was a full-time reporter i took two months and worked on for the league of conservation voters going door to door talking to undecided voters two months every day and one of the things i learned was that the very -- the way that people who think about politics all the time thing about politics is different than the way that people who don't ever think about politics think about politics. the vastness of that difference is a difficult thing to bridge. the place it hit home to me most was the conception of the issue as a conceptual category. when i say what issues do you care about. choice and taxation. you've already internalized the fact that's the way we cut the world into pieces. if you start a campaign website, you would know what the headings are. defense, economy. >> my issues are longer recess and soda in the water fountain. something else entirely. neil newhouse says about independent undecided voters, over

the romney campaign, a major float of a proposal in a local television interview the day or two before the debate. seems like the $17,000 cap -- >> bucket. >> is actually, i think, an interesting idea, but it's not one that governor romney is apparently actually proposing and not one that his campaign is answering specific questions about. why he's going to throw something out there on the eve of the debate is a little unclear to me but it is incumbent upon him. this is the center piece of what he's runni inrunning. you can theoretically offset if you scale back enough deductions but to do that requires a powerful president to take on a lot of special interests and with no mandate by talking about it specifically, i don't know how he can possibly accomplish it. >> kurt, $17,000 bucket, dropped quite literally on the eve of the debate and you walk back, walk back and say maybe not that bucket maybe a basket of a different shape and size. >> it's very interesting. for him to say that, here's what mitt romney was saying, he was saying let's mean test federal tax expen tours, limit to $17,

to a local denver tv station. >> you could do something, for instance, as an option, you could say everybody's going to get up to a $17,000 deduction and use your charitable deduction, home mortgage deduction or others, health care deduction and fill that bucket if you will, $17,000 bucket, higher income people might have a lower number. >> last night romney ditched the $17,000 bucket and suggested he might make up a number. >> one of the various ways to bring down deductions, a single number, make up a number, 25,000, 50,000. >> yes, make up a number. anyway, who cares about specifics? or facts for that matter? instead, romney tried to remind voters about the president's broken promises. >> the president said he'd cut the deficit in half. unfortunately he doubled it the president did say he would cut the deficit in half -- >> i'm pledging to cut the deficit we inherited by half by the end of my first term in office. >> that clearly didn't happen. but did the president double it? according to the congressional budget office the deficit is projected to decrease, decrease, from $1.4 trillion i

saying, it was a great opportunity to highlight the importance of voluntarism and local clarihair charities. no word on ryan's dish pan hands but role playing is nothing new to mitt romney. in his 2002 campaign he held several work days. an ad shows his selling sausages a at a hot dog stand working construction with a road crew and collecting trash as a garbage man. with the president virtually guaranteed to bring up the 47% issue the question eeremains ca mitt romney convince voters he does care about the working class even when the cameras aren't rolling. mark, as i throw pen caps towards you, let's talk about the expectations game and start mitt romney. a lot of expectations. we'll get to those. as far as making the case to an audience of live humans the town hall format, does he need to show up in a hot dog suit tonight? what does he need to do to convince the audience he does care about the 100%? >> i think it's really pure style. we talk about how -- lament that these events are more about style than substance. the mitt romney that showed up at the first debate, shown up mor
